Thistles are never usually thought of well. But to medical herbalists thistles are valuable life-savers and modern scientific research is backing up thousands of years of use of various native thistles in therapeutic applications.

Chief amongst the thistle medicines is The Milk Thistle or Marian Thistle. It is an impressive plant as our pictures show (our donkey Ollie particularly likes it).

There is a tradition that the milk-white veins of the leaves originated in the milk of the Virgin which once fell upon a plant of Thistle, hence it was called Our Lady's Thistle, and the Latin name of the species has the same derivation (Silybum marianum).

The seeds are mainly used in modern herbal medicine, ground or in tincture form, although the leaves and stems (after being crushed to remove the prickles) are excellent food for cattle and horses.

The seeds are nourishing and beneficial for many kinds of liver disorders, both acute (it has a reputation and scientific evidence backs this up for being the only remedy to cure poisoning by death cap mushroom) and chronic (serious liver disorders such as hepatitis and cancer).

Here are a few scientific studies supporting Milk Thistle’s medicinal use:

Milk Thistle to Treat Liver Disorders and Cancers: Post-White J, Ladas EJ, Kelly KM. Advances in the use of milk thistle (Silybum marianum) Integrative Cancer Ther. 2007;6(2):104-109.

Milk Thistle Extract Reduces Liver Damage in Patients Receiving Psychotropic Drugs: Palasciano G, Portincasa Piero, Vincenzo P, et. Al. The Effect of Silymarin on Plasma Levels of Malon-Dialdehyde in Patients Receiving Long-Term Treatment with Psychotropic Drugs Current Therapeutic Research. Vol 55, No 5 May 1994.

Meta-Analysis of Clinical Trials on Milk Thistle Extract for Alcoholic and/or Hepatits B or C Liver Disease: Rambaldi A, Jacobs B, Iaqunito G, Gluud C. Milk thistle for alcoholic and/or hepatitis B or C liver diseases - a systematic Cochrane hepato-biliary group review with meta-analyses of randomized clinical trials Am J Gastroenterol. 2005;100:2583-2591.

Berberine and Milk Thistle Combination Found to Be Beneficial When Used with Oral Medications to Control Type 2 Diabetes: Mellitus Di Pierro F, Villanova N, Agostini F, Marzocchi R, Soverini V, Marchesini G. Pilot study on the additive effects of berberine and oral type 2 diabetes agents for patients with suboptimal glycemic control. Diabetes Metab Syndr Obes. 2012;5:213-217. doi: 10.2147/DMSO.S33718.
